A hundred armed men surround this poor house of mine. Go you. Friend Dingle, to the patio entrance and look." A murmuring rose among the recent arrivals and one of them ran to the entrance of the patio.

Crooked Bill's old eyes fairly popped with delight at the part he was playing. "When I first Jumped into the market, Glenn, I sold twenty-five hundred of a certain stock short. Then the stock started up grade, so I sold out, took my loss and immediately bought double the amount I sold, and spread it as thin as I could on margin." "Excellent strategy." "Well, then, your plan will be to suggest that now, with the stock at its peak price, the obvious thing for me to do is to sell five thousand shares or even ten thousand. You'll put up the margin for me. Assure me there is no risk, that the stock will drop a hundred points within sixty days. You can cite any number of stocks that have dropped that much some of them In a week. Here is a list to refresh your mem ory. Remind me that for a while during the post-wa- r panic Liberty bonds sold away below par. Advise me to make the gamble and assure me I will not be called upon for any more margin, that the price of my stock has now reached a point that is unhealthy, wildly speculative, not backed up by assets. Pretty soon It will begin to slide, and when it has slid far enough all I have to do is to sell out my line, clean up and be bark where I started, less the sums I owe you. Point out that by this method of procedure I can. at least, get back a million dollars, but Insist that when I do you must have my solemn word of honor never, never to do any more stock gambling."
